Features

Personalize learning with MyLab Education

MyLab™ Education is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through video clips, practice what they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master key learning outcomes.

  • Classroom videos engage students and bring the text to life. As students read through their eText, they encounter embedded videos that illustrate or expand on key chapter concepts using real classroom footage. In this way, abstract or difficult-to-understand concepts are brought to life. Students read about a concept and then see it demonstrated with real teachers and students, helping them better understand course content. 

  • Assessments guide student learning. Throughout their eText students are presented with opportunities to check their understanding of key concepts through multiple-choice assessments. Students receive immediate feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master the key learning outcomes. Results are organized and reported to the gradebook by learning outcome, enabling students and instructors to focus on the concepts that require the most attention.

  • Application Exercises help students apply their learning. Interactive Application Exercises and Assessments involving the analysis of dynamic videos, case studies, and artifacts help students apply and internalize their learning. Engaging in these learning experiences helps students practice and strengthen skills that prepare them for classroom observation and teaching.

 

Additional text features include:
